When a person is singled out or treated unfairly because of certain characteristics, that’s discrimination. But did you know there are also different types of discrimination an individual might experience, such as workplace policies that apply to all employees but actually place some people at an unfair disadvantage?

It’s really important to understand the different ways that people can experience discrimination, and that’s true for the workplace as well. This way, employees can defend themselves and each other while making sure they don’t treat anyone in a way that is discriminatory and wrong.
